My photo
I am the Momma of 8 children. Seven here on earth and 1 precious little Angel in Heaven. My children range in age from 2 months to 25 years. My 6 year old was born with a laundry list of complex medical conditions. He has Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome), a rare brain malformation, which resulted from a mutation of the PAX-6 gene, bilateral anophthalmia, which means that he was born without any eyes, so he is totally blind. At the age of 2 1/2 months old he had to have a tracheostomy to help aid in his breathing. He is hearing impaired, with normal hearing in his left ear and has profound deafness in his right. At 3 1/2 years he had surgery to have a Mic-Key button placed in his stomach (feeding Tube), which is mainly used to give him his medications. He also has insulin dependant diabetes and wears an insulin pump, which gives him a continuous dose of insulin. Even with his many dis"abilities," including being globally developmentally delayed, he has accomplished more than anyone would have ever believed that he could. Join us in our journey living with a Dis"Abled" child....

Ultrasound Pictures

Here are the ultrasound pictures from my appointment on Jan. 18th. Sorry they are a bit late being posted, but our week has been crazy! This ultrasound was mainly scheduled to determine just how far along I am in my -regnancy. On the day of the ultrasound I was 11.3 weeks pregnant. We had the ultrasound tech (Angela) just to take a quick peek at the brain and eye orbits. It is a bit early for a "definate" diagnoses of a "healthy" baby. BUT she could tell that there were 2 eye orbits. And there were definately 2 seperate brain hemospheres! Both of these are very promising news for us. I have my full anatomy ultrasound on March 1st.
